NGO Work in Tanzania - highlights of relevant facts, policies and laws (2012 edition)

The work of NGOs in Tanzania is guided by a number of policies and laws. For any Finnish, or other foreign NGO having partners in Tanzania, the knowledge about the relevant regulations is essential. Information about the registration of NGOs and the governance system within organisations enables the partnership building between Northern and Southern organisations. The practice of project work often requires knowledge about banking system, employment procedures and land ownership.

This working paper puts together some relevant facts considering NGO work in Tanzania. It aims to be a handbook that facilitates obtaining further knowledge and provides contact information. The policy and legal environment is continuously changing. Originally published in 2008, this working paper has been updated to describe the situation in 2011.
